The works are by the fourteen artists who participated in the DMAG Joined Up project and are inspired by the WW1 collections of 10 Dover District Museums and Heritage sites. The museums will be exhibiting with the artists objects that have been the inspiration for the new works.

With the landslip on the rail line between Dover and Folkestone just before Christmas the high speed service from Dover to St Pancras is disrupted and there is a replacement bus service between Dover and Folkestone . We will be laying on a bus at 10.20 pm to take anyone who lets us know from the Maison Dieu to Folkestone West on May 20th. This will be in time to catch the last train for London St Pancras that is currently 23:02.
